Tickets €20 / €18

One of Ireland's most enigmatic and captivating performers brings his newest show to town..

He's such a legend that Ireland’s biggest music and arts festival, the Electric Picnic, have afforded him his very own stage to perform in and curate for the past five years. 

An indie legend and ringmaster of exceptional renown, Jerry Fish has evolved into a showman extraordinaire, capturing the hearts and minds of audiences all over with his now legendary live shows.

In the Autumn of 2017 Jerry triumphantly took his stranger-than-fiction life story to theatre audiences for the very first time at Dublin Fringe Festival, selling out four nights at the prestigious Project Arts Centre.

“Don’t forget to read between the lines, chew what I say and try not to swallow.” one of Ireland’s most entertaining performers steps into the theatre to bring his stranger-than-fiction life story to the playhouse. Meet Jerry Fish, the descendant of pirates that once swung from gallows on Misery Hill. Born-hard to a mermaiden mother, swaddled in a baggywinkle by the Liffey, uprooted and raised on the banks of the Thames. Chockablock full of vaudevillian fun and games. Voyage to the artist’s ancestral self with never before-told-stories, half-truths, half-fictions and brand new songs.

‘Jerry is a natural showman’
